If you have an iPhone and iTunes you can edit any MP3 and convert the resulting file to a ringtone without having to download any additional software.

How to Make Custom iPhone Ringtones for Free
By Alexia Petrakos, eHow Contributor
updated: April 1, 2010


1
Open iTunes.

2
Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.

3
Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start.

4
Write down the start and stop times of the clip.

5
Right-click the song and select "Get Info."

6
Click the "Options" tab.

7
Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Start Time" in the minutes:seconds (i.e., 2:01) format.

8

Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Stop Time." Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.

9
Click "OK."

10
Right-click your song again and select "Convert Selection to AAC." Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version.

11
Right-click the ringtone and select "Delete."

12
Click on the "Keep Files" button.

13
Find the file. It's usually in your User folder under "Music > iTunes > iTunes Music" and under the band's name. It will have an extension of m4a.

14

Replace the m4a extension of your ringtone with m4r. You can either double-click slowly to rename your file, or right-click and select "Get Info" on a Mac or "Rename" on a Windows PC.

15

Click "Use .m4r" or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.

16

Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.

17
Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.

I haven't had any problems, and my daughter uses the site all the time. I do have a Mac computer though.

I also have a Mac -- it crashed just as I was sending my first ringtone to my phone -- Big Boss Man for when my husband calls!

thanks -- I'll switch over to that. I really hope it works -- I was having so much fun thinking up ringtones for all my nearest and dearest.
